The world moves slowly in 19-year old director Josh Prendeville’s video for Bad Blocks’ “Circulate.” A man walks trancelike through his house, curtains ripple faintly in a breeze, leaves levitate upward around a woman in a black dress. Is she real? Imagined? An omen, or a memory? The video offers no answers. Instead, it moves hypnotically from scene to scene, beautifully meditative, masterfully controlled until it reaches its haunting finale. Its the perfect complement to the song, which is comprised of little blips and glitches, a single vocal phrase repeating again and again, sounding mournful and distant. Taken together, a riveting piece of art, tragic and mesmerizing.
